Debbie Smyth Quote of the Week  comes from American photographer Robert Franks who passed away this week .

“Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”

Robert Frank

Here are 2 photographs of Cafee Trieste I took and edited inspired  by his style of black and white photography.

Shadow on the wall 2015
Girl  and Woman 2015

Looking at the work of great photographers can teach us so much. My hope is all new photographers could experience shooting black and white film. I despair that that is virtually impossible. I hope new technologies offers virtual possibilities.
